MEPAcon Schedule is a Go!

Spring MEPAcon is in just a two weeks! My schedule of GM events has been pushed to the registration site for player sign-ups! If any of you will be in the Scranton, PA area and like to attend, I can be found on Friday and Saturday running the following:


Friday:
1400-1800 The Night Train is Coming - Swords & Wizardry Modern Supplement
Description: The bodies of missing teenagers have been found on the outskirts of the small town of Albany, PA. Two males, two females, all carved up like Halloween pumpkins. The FBI has been called in and believe it the work of a serial killer. Local drunk and guardian of one of the murdered girls, Jacob Greely, thinks different ... he thinks something more sinister is afoot and hires a group of private investigators to find out what is happening.
The Coming of the Night Train is a paranormal investigation adventure in the modern world using the Swords & Wizardry OSR system as its base. Characters will be provided for play.
Saturday:
0900-1300 Pyramid of the Lost King - The Rock of Saint Giles
1400-1800 Pyramid of the Lost King - The Rock of Saint Giles
Description: The old Drunk Priest, Clem has come across reference in his spiritual texts of a site of potential religious merit deep in the Upper Narrows. According to this text, Saint Giles, hero of the gods of Balance, built and consecrated a shrine within a rock outcropping while lost in a “land of unknowable thirst and sand”. Clem believes this shrine to be located somewhere in the Upper Narrows and wishes the party to locate it.
A Beginner Friendly Adventure for 5 players. Pre-gens will be made available, however, we can create onsite if players prefer.
While once again mainly filled with board games, Dungeons & Dragons 5e, and Pathfinder there does seem to be some Old school gaming events such as Circle Tooth Tower for AD&D and Dragons of Despair for 2e. Registration for the whole weekend is $45 and the Hilton in Scranton is an amazing and much improved location. So again, if your in the area stop in and say high and maybe if I can swing it during that hour break I can chat with people over coffee at the hipster cafe across the street (where I also happen to do much of my writing!).

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
Arcane Gauntlet- Rare Magical Item - Requires Atunement - Ranged Magical Weapon - Range 60/120ft - One Target, Hit 6 (1d6 + 2) Arcane Damage - Special After 4 uses the Gauntlet inflicts 2 Arcane damage on its wearer during every use in an encounter, on the 8th such use the wearer incurs 1d6 damage from the gauntlet's use.
